I finally joined this project, after lurking for a couple years.
This month's 'journal entry' was an easy one. I've been in a transition for the last few months and have been anxiously awaiting getting into my own home. Factors outside my control have made this move a little rockier and more chaotic that I care to talk about ("if you can't say something nice....").
But there have been some good things! During this transition I've been rather blessed with interesting living arrangements. We stayed at my late FIL's home near the beach during the summer and fall. And since moving up to Massachusetts, I've been staying with one of my dearest friends and her family for the last couple months while I find the perfect home for us to live! It's like having a sleepover with your girlfriend - every night! Well, maybe not every night - we do have work and children to tend to - but I'm not gonna lie - our Downton Abbey marathon for a week and a half was a veritable blast!
So back to my entry for my bead journal:
What does this symbolize? My desire to close on this house(yes, we're still under contract, and just experienced another delay!)?
The view from my window the last few months?
The house I've got my eye on for a rental if the house doesn't work out? (which also happens to be blue with some pine trees tucked behind!!!)
I think all of the above, or none of the above! More than anything it symbolizes my longing to get settled into our own home. This little house is just a perfect picture of what's going on in my head this month!
When we do eventually get settled, and I call for my PODS container to be delivered, which contains several big boxes of craft supplies - I am looking forward to creating an actual journal to keep this year's Bead Journal Project entries in a small book!
